Great Haywood.

We dropped down though Tixall Lock and on along for diesel at the Anglo Welsh base at Great Haywood. A very friendly place who will do ‘Poste Resante’ for me now that the Post Offices are stopping their service. Leaving under the junction bridge we turned right onto the T&M canal to find a space just a few boat lengths down. I had a surprise when I went to buy things at the Farm Shop, as next to it there was a posh new Canalside Cafe which opened in July. Next day we went there for our lunch and very lovely it was too, then I picked up my post. I found that there was a very efficient little pharmacy where I was able to pick up my prescription items, brilliant service all round!

It's even more glorious with the leaves changing colour and the early morning mists. We've given in now and got the fire going earlier than usual though. We are thinking of you both and hope all goes well for you. Thanx for your lovely comment. Wozie and the Cabin Boy!
